non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
Alzheimer’s disease (AD)
Parkinson’s disease (PD)
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Coffee is among the most widespread and healthiest beverages in the world. Coffee typically contains more caffeine than most other beverages, and is widely and frequently consumed. Thus, it contributes significantly to the overall caffeine consumption within the general population, particularly in adults.
Controversies regarding its benefits and risks still exist as reliable evidence is becoming available supporting its health-promoting potential. Several lines of evidence have highlighted the beneficial effects towards several disease conditions including Type II diabetes, hepatitis C virus, hepatocellular carcinoma, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Regarding antioxidants, the polyphenol content of a 180 ml cup of instant coffee has been estimated to be approximately 320 mg
SuperCoffees are serious about coffee, that is why their coffee is sourced from Brazil. Brazil is by far, the largest coffee producer in the world, so naturally they know their stuff. Beans, particularly in the fine coffee regions of Mogiana and Cerrado are grown in extraordinarily rich and fertile soil, then sun-dried with the highest level of care, attention and love that their coffee producers are known for.
Brazil has been the world’s largest producer of coffee for the last 150 years, currently producing about a third of all coffee. In 2011 Brazil was the world leader in production of green coffee, followed by Vietnam, Indonesia and Colombia. The country is unrivalled in total production of green coffee, arabica coffee and instant coffee. In 2011, total production was 2.7 million tonnes. Some 3.5 million people are involved in the industry, mostly in rural areas.
Coffee is so much a part of the Brazilian culture and is celebrated so widely, they even have a coffee-scented postage stamp to promote it.
So you know that your in good hands when it comes to quality, purity and being organic with only the finest organic Arabica beans being used in all Supercoffees.
But does coffee or caffeine help burn fat?
One study showed that caffeine increased fat burning by as much as 29% in lean women, while the increase was only about 10% in obese women this was published in 1995 in the study called Effects of caffeine on energy metabolism, heart rate, and methylxanthine metabolism in lean and obese women. So burning fat becomes much easier when you regularly enjoy your cup of coffee.
Some studies show that caffeine can increase Resting Metabolic Rate by 3 to 11%. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published research by Dulloo, Geissler, Horton, Collins, Miller and found that a single-dose oral administration of 100 mg caffeine increased the resting metabolic rate of both lean and obese human volunteers by 3–4% over 150 minutes. This is great for those people who feel they have a sluggish metabolism and feel they wear every meal they eat.
The net effect was a significant increase in daily Energy Expenditure of 150 kcal in the lean volunteers and 79 kcal in the obese subjects.
A study, led by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers “Coffee, Caffeine, and Risk of Depression Among Women,” found that, among women, drinking coffee may reduce the risk of depression. The researchers, led by Michel Lucas, research fellow in nutrition, found the risk of depression to be 20% lower among women who drank four or more cups of caffeinated coffee than those who drank little or none. So a regular cup of coffee will work wonders for your mood – but Supercoffees go a little further by adding additional nutrients (see list below) to make you feel great every day!
Green Coffee Extract
Green coffee beans have long been cherished for their affect on weight loss and sugar management and that is why we added them to our Radiance blend.
Radiance Coffee contains 500mg of Green Coffee Extract.
The second ingredient found in Radiance Coffee is Green coffee extract. Green coffee extract is an extract of unroasted, green coffee beans. Green coffee extract has been used as a weight-loss supplement and as an ingredient in other weight-loss products.
In 2017 a scientific review assessed the effects of chlorogenic acids, the main phenolic compounds in green coffee extract. It included studies of chlorogenic acids both as a constituent of coffee and directly as a purified extract, and suggested several beneficial effects, in particular improved glucose and lipid metabolism, as well as anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.
In another scientific research study -The effect of chlorogenic acid enriched coffee on glucose absorption in healthy volunteers and its effect on body mass when used long-term in overweight and obese people. 2007
It was found that 440-495mg of Chlorogenic acid, via enriched coffee and compared to control (placebo) coffee, is able to reduce weight to a larger degree over 12 weeks in obese persons. So great for those people looking to lose weight with minimum fuss.
Radiance coffee contains 500mg of Green Coffee Extract
The results from the clinical study performed in 12 healthy volunteers with different coffee products containing glucose show that instant coffee enriched with chlorogenic acid induced a reduction in the absorption of glucose of 6.9% compared with the control. No such effects were seen with normal or decaffeinated instant coffee. So this is great for those people who suffer from elevated levels of sugar in their blood such as diabetics.
In a second, comparative, randomized, double-blind, 12-week study they investigated the effect on the body mass of 30 overweight people, compared with normal instant coffee.
The average losses in mass in the chlorogenic acid enriched and normal instant coffee groups were 5.4 and 1.7 kg, respectively. Good news for those struggling to lose weight.
It was concluded that chlorogenic acid enriched instant coffee appears to have a significant effect on the absorption and utilization of glucose from the diet. This effect, if the coffee is used for an extended time, may result in reduced body mass and body fat when compared with the use of normal instant coffee. So you can see that are super enhanced coffee is really formulated to make weight loss and sugar normalisation easy.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea (Camellia Sinensis) is a plant frequently steeped in hot water and drunk as tea. It exerts most of its benefits through water-soluble polyphenols (frequently referred to as catechins) extracted from the leaves, into water, which is then consumed.
It has been implicated in benefiting almost every organ system in the body. It is cardioprotective, neuroprotective, anti-obesity, anti-carcinogenic, anti-diabetic, anti-atherogenic, liver protective and beneficial for blood vessel health. These beneficial effects are seen in doses present both in green tea itself (as a drink) as well as from a supplemental form.
Radiance coffee Contains 400mg of GTE.
Significant effects in humans are noted only at high doses, such as 400-500mg EGCG equivalent per day (most Green Tea Extract supplements are roughly 50% EGCG). Fat burning effects are highly synergistic, almost dependent through water-soluble polyphenols (frequently referred to as catechins) extracted from the leaves, into water, which is then consumed.
In one study –Effects Of Catechin Enriched Green Tea On Body Composition it was shown that there was a decrease in waist circumference noted in the highest catechin group and was associated with 1.2kg body weight lost in 90 days relative to control. Both moderate consumption groups lost weight relative to control (low catechin) but higher intake was more significant.
A meta-analysis is a statistical analysis that combines the results of multiple scientific studies. So useful to find out if a nutritional supplement is really effective.
In 2011 a meta-analysis of green tea consumption found that a cup of green tea is likely causative of approximately 5.7g of body fat to be ‘burnt’
When it comes to stubborn belly fat GTE and exercise could be useful as found in a study named: Green tea catechin consumption enhances exercise-induced abdominal fat loss in overweight and obese adults. So Radiance Coffee really makes you win with your belly fat busting efforts.
Effects on skin
Green Tea contains powerful antioxidants called Catechins which help protect the skin from oxidative damage. Green Tea is also an anti-inflammatory ingredient so helps to calm red, sore spots and blemishes. Is this proven?
An article published in the August issue of the Archives of Dermatology says yes — in theory.
“There may be some benefits of green tea in the human skin products,” Hasan Mukhtar, PhD, and colleagues say in the article, which summarizes all the known information about green tea’s effects on the skin. Mukhtar is a professor and the director of research in the department of dermatology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
White Kidney Bean Extract
White Kidney Bean Extract can be used for many purposes and many occasions such as helping to minimize or prevent weight gain from overeating, allowing you to have “cheat days” in your diet without feeling guilty. It’s also for those who want to reduce their carbohydrate intake but don’t have time or are unsure of where to start.
Radiance Coffee contains 200mg of White Kidney Bean Extract.
White Kidney Bean extract is a carbohydrate blocker that works by inhibiting the digestion of starches.
By inhibiting their digestion, starches that are eaten are either left undigested in the gut or the amount of which is digested is reduced. These starches are either excreted and their calories not absorbed, or they are given to colonic bacteria to ferment (eat).
When given to people who are not otherwise on a diet (during their highest carb containing meal), white kidney bean extract is able to reduce body weight and body fat levels similar to simple caloric restriction. In cases of overfeeding, white kidney bean extract can alleviate the expected increase of body fat gain and blood parameters like triglycerides and blood glucose over time.
It is also possible that white kidney bean extract can protect against colon cancer in the same manner as soluble fibre.
In 2007 the International Journal of Medical Science published a study using a dietary supplement containing standardized white kidney bean extract or Phaseolus vulgaris.
Using 60 slightly overweight subjects (5 to 15 kg overweight). The subjects were required to have a stable weight for the past 6 months and underwent a 2-week single-blinded, run-in period prior to randomization. The subjects took 1 tablet (active or placebo) per day for 30 consecutive days before a meal rich in carbohydrates (2000 to 2200 calorie diet).
After 30 days, the active group had a significant reduction in body weight, BMI, fat mass, adipose tissue thickness and waist/hip/thigh circumferences while maintaining lean body mass.
The active group lost an average of 2.93 kg (6.45 lbs) in 30 days
The active group demonstrated a 10.45% reduction in body fat compared with a 0.16% reduction in the placebo group
Waist and hip circumferences measured in a standard way, showed the same pattern as well. The active group demonstrated 2.93 cm and 1.48 cm reductions respectively
So it can be seen that Radiance Coffee is serious about making you lose weight with 200mg of WKB extract in each cup of coffee
Pusztai A, et al. Lipid accumulation in obese Zucker rats is reduced by inclusion of raw kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) in the diet. Br J Nutr. (1998) The results suggest that, in addition to animal nutrition, it may also be possible to use the bean lectin as a dietary adjunct or therapeutic agent to stimulate gut function and ameliorate obesity if a safe and effective dose-range can be established for human subjects.
Layer P, et al. Effect of a purified amylase inhibitor on carbohydrate tolerance in normal subjects and patients with diabetes mellitus. Mayo Clin Proc. (1986) We conclude that a purified amylase inhibitor is effective and potentially beneficial in the treatment of diabetes mellitus.
A Dietary Supplement Containing Standardized Phaseolus vulgaris Extract Influences Body Composition of Overweight Men and Women. Results: After 30 days, subjects receiving Phaseolus vulgaris extract with a carbohydrate-rich, 2000- to 2200-calorie diet had significantly (p<0.001) greater reduction of body weight, BMI, fat mass, adipose tissue thickness, and waist,/hip/ thigh circumferences while maintaining lean body mass compared to subjects receiving placebo.
Conclusion: The results indicate that Phaseolus vulgaris extract produces significant decrements in body weight and suggest decrements in fat mass in the face of maintained lean body mass
Widely popular in Chinese medicine, Ganoderma coffee is brewed using coffee beans that are infused with a certain type of mushroom or fungus known as Ganoderma lucidum, or reishi.
Commonly known as reishi mushroom, genoderma is the most alkaline food in the world. Its scientific name is Ganoderma Lucidum and it is species of red mushrooms. It has a documented history of over 200 years and is the most revered herb in traditional China. It is adaptogenic, reduces stress, calming, grounding. It helps with liver detox, and breaks down cortisol.
Radiance Coffee contains 300mg of Ganoderma Extract
Ganoderma enhances your rate of metabolism; as your metabolic rate increases, your body burns more energy to digest food more efficiently. This increased need for energy in your body uses up more calories; consequently, your fat deposits begin to thin.
Ganoderma Lucidum is very good at controlling your hormonal balance. If you’re suffering a hormonal imbalance due to hypothyroidism or some other condition, chances are that you have been gaining weight. Using Ganoderma may very well put your hormones back into balance leading you to shed that spare tire around your waist that you have carried for so long as a consequence of your hormone imbalance.
Scientific data supports its positive health benefits, including anticancer effects; blood glucose regulation; antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral effects; and protection against liver and gastric injury.
Glucomannan, from konjac root, is a form of beneficial soluble fibre that can improve bowel health, blood sugar and lipids, and other health conditions. It can also help you lose fat and stay lean by improving satiety and appetite hormones.
Radiance coffee contains 100mg of Glucomannan
Five studies showed that this supplement can help increase weight loss
The scientific research in Chronic use of glucomannan in the dietary treatment of severe obesity showed that due to the marked ability to satiate patients and the positive metabolic effects, glucomannan diet supplements have been found to be particularly efficacious and well tolerated even in the long-term treatment of severe obesity.
In this study -Effect of glucomannan on obese patients: a clinical study results showed a significant mean weight loss (5.5 lbs) using glucomannan over an eight-week period. Serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol were significantly reduced (21.7 and 15.0 mg/dl respectively) in the glucomannan treated group. No adverse reactions to glucomannan were reported.
Glucomannan increased the production of beneficial bacteria (lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria) in seven constipated subjects and eight healthy adults and can therefore remove that dreaded bloated feeling people have that throws them off their weight loss goals.
When taken before meals, glucomannan may lead to modest weight loss in overweight individuals, mainly by creating a feeling of fullness and reducing energy intake. So drinking Radiance coffee before a large carbohydrate rich meal may be a good idea to help your weight loss targets.
Resveratrol extract can induce weight loss and it can also prevent anti–aging as well. Studies have found that you can use resveratrol to speed up your metabolism to help you burn more calories throughout the day.
With a combination of diet and exercise of course, a resveratrol extract can help you lose weight.
Radiance Coffee contains 10mg of Resveratrol
Resveratrol can cause the death of fat cells also known as apoptosis.
This was shown in the following study:
Resveratrol induces apoptosis and inhibits adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
Which concluded the following:
results indicate that resveratrol may alter fat mass by directly affecting cell viability and adipogenesis in maturing preadipocytes and inducing apoptosis in adipocytes and thus may have applications for the treatment of obesity.
Resveratrol seems to influence cholesterol levels by reducing the effect of an enzyme that controls cholesterol production so in the scientific study in 2016 “Distinct metabolic effects of resveratrol on lipogenesis…..” it was found that these results point to the increased potential of resveratrol use in prevention of metabolic syndrome. So by reducing lipogenesis (the metabolic formation of fat) the body become healthier and leaner.
This is great for those people who feel that they have the symptoms of metabolic syndrome such as increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels — that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Another good reason to consume Radiance Coffee on a regular basis.
Usually used as a spicy addition to food but can cayenne pepper help with weight loss? Research shows it might actually help by boosting metabolism and suppressing appetite
Radiance Coffee contains 25mg of a 10:1 extract of Cayenne
Capsaicin or Cayenne pepper is a compound that increases the thermogenesis in the body. Increased heat emission translates to higher energy use, hence the increase in body cells’ temperature results in faster metabolism and better use of the stored fat.
Capsaicin is also responsible for the secretion of dopamine and adrenaline (transmitters of signals in brain cells) affecting the appetite and feeling of hunger.
It also exhibits healing properties – it stimulates the production of antibodies, therefore is helpful as a cold prevention.
An older study from 2003 found that women who ate fresh chili pepper raised their metabolic rate for up to 30 minutes after consuming it. Your metabolic rate affects the speed at which your body converts food and beverages into energy. When your metabolism is faster, your body is more likely to convert nutrients into energy instead of stored fat.
A 2010 study demonstrated the potential of dihydrocapsiate to increase metabolic rates. Dihydrocapsiate is a capsinoid found in chili peppers. It’s similar to capsaicin. People who took a dihydrocapsiate supplement for one month raised their metabolic rates by about 50 calories.
More Calories Burned
In addition to increasing your metabolism, cayenne pepper is thought to help you burn calories because it’s spicy.
When you eat a spicy pepper, it causes your body’s temperature to rise. When your body’s temperature rises, your body goes into a cooldown mode. This causes your body to burn calories. A 2011 study found that people who don’t like spicy food had better weight loss results when they started taking cayenne.

First discovered in the 1950s, L-Carnitine is naturally produced in the liver and kidneys via the amino acids lysine and methionine. It is stored in virtually every other part of the body, with the highest concentrations found in the muscle and brain. The primary dietary source for L-Carnitine is meat, with red meat considered as better sources. Other meat products, soybeans, and avocado also contain this chemical compound.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is the preferred form of Carnitine for brain and nerve support because the acetyl group enables the molecule to cross the blood-brain barrier more easily and may also provide substrate (acetyl groups) for synthesis of acetylcholine—a primary neurotransmitter in the brain. The Acetyl L-Carnitine helps for converting fat into energy.
Radiance coffee contains 200mg of Acetyl L- Carnitine.
Dandelion Root Powder
Dandelion tea is said to promote weight loss in a small number of ways.
• Detoxes the body – crucial for weight loss
• Has a diuretic effect – flushes out excess water and toxins
• Inhibits adipogenesis – stops the formation of fat in the body
Radiance Coffee contains 90mg of Dandelion Root Powder
Forskolin is an extract from the plant Coleus Forskohlii, a member of the mint family native to subtropical regions of Africa and Asia. Coleus has a long history of use in ancient Ayurveda medicine. It has been used to support heart, lung and sexual health, among numerous other uses.
Forskolin has many potentially useful properties: It stimulates cyclic AMP, lowers blood pressure, prevents blockage of blood vessels Promotes weight loss, relaxes muscles, influences hormone release, restores function of heart cells, lowers inflammation and kills different types of cancer cells.
Radiance Coffee contains a 20% extract of 100mg of Coleus Forskolin
1. BURNS FAT AND INCREASES TESTOSTERONE IN MEN
One of the most rigorous and promising studies concerning supplemental Forskolin was conducted by researchers at the University of Kansas a few years ago. They found that overweight and obese men lost more than 7.8 times more body fat, added 35 percent more bone mass, and increased their bioavailable free testosterone by almost 34 percent more when they added 250 mg of a 10 percent Forskolin-containing Coleus to their otherwise unchanged daily lives, twice per day. In other words, 50 mg of total Forskolin per day—as compared to subjects who consumed a placebo—realized a significant improvement in both body composition and testosterone levels. Radiance Coffee contains 100mg of 20 percent Forskolin – So two cups a day will get you to 40mg of pure Forskohlii close to the University of Kansas dose protocol.
2. HELPS PREVENT WEIGHT GAIN FOR WOMEN
In a study called – Effects of Coleus Forskohlii Supplementation on Body Composition and Hematological Profiles in Mildly Overweight Women, it was concluded that “Coleus Forskohlii has the potential to positively influence the loss and management of overall body weight possibly as a means of maintaining weight after weight loss.”
3. CAN HELP WITH INSULIN RESISTANCE AND DIABETES
Forskolin improves cellular insulin response. It is also good for suppressing inflammation, which often worsens the condition in diabetic patients and helps decrease the level of sugar in the blood in rats. So along with other sugar regulating supplements contained in Radiance Coffee you can be sure your doing your best to combat poor insulin management by your body, one of the symptoms of metabolic syndrome.
4. IS USED TO IMPROVE DAMAGED AND AGING SKIN
In a study called – Treatment Ultraviolet radiation, aging and the skin: prevention of damage by topical cAMP manipulation it was shown that the Coleus Forskolii plant may enhance protection against UV-induce molecular damage to the skin. This study also showed that Forskolin can also prevent aging by counteracting damage to the genes and eliminating destructive types of oxygen. So, Radiance Coffee can help you to stay radiant.
5. MAY KILL CANCER CELLS
Forskolin can influence cancer cells through a number of mechanisms and is now viewed as a promising assisting supplement in cancer therapy. Research has been carried out on this wonder supplement and positive effects have been shown on Leukaemia sufferers as well as benefit to those suffering from brain cancer. Forskolin activates protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A). Activation of PP2A also causes cell death in cancer of the prostate. It has also been used to improve the effectiveness of some cancer drug therapies.
6. IS GOOD FOR THE HEART
A water-soluble forskolin derivative has been shown to reduce the contraction muscle cells in the heart and blood vessels. Muscle relaxation is very important in preventing heart attacks. It was known since the 80s that forskolin helps muscles in blood vessels relax, thus helping the blood flow and reducing blood pressure in older patients.
Black Pepper Extract
Black pepper extract supplies an active ingredient called piperine, which may aid weight loss by:
• Supporting metabolism via digestion-enhancing activity
• Promoting thermogenesis (heat generation), which reinforces its metabolic support
• Suppressing the formation of fat cells by modulating fat-forming proteins
Radiance Coffee contains 20mg of Black Pepper (Piperidine)
5-HTP is the precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter sometimes touted to be responsible for happiness. It has also been shown to reduce and burn fat through the consumption of less calories especially carbohydrates.
Radiance Coffee contains 50mg of 5-HTP.
5-HTP, whether produced chemically or extracted naturally, lowers body weight by reducing appetite. It reduces sweet and fat cravings
Canganio and his fellow researchers proposed a theory that diabetes is characterised by depressed brain serotonin levels, uncontrolled appetite and carbohydrate craving so 5-HTP supplementation should normalize serotonin levels and eating behaviour.
They conducted an experiment on overweight diabetic patients where these individuals received 750mg of 5-HTP per day or placebo. Individuals receiving 5-HTP experienced a decrease in appetite, reduced carbohydrate and fat intake and reduced body weight.
The same researchers have proven these findings in obese individuals. The study lasted for 2 consecutive 6 week periods. For the first week no diet restrictions were placed but the subsequent week a diet of 5040kJ per day was prescribed.
Treatment with 5-HTP caused significant weight loss (approximately 5% of initial body weight), reduced carbohydrate intake and promoted satiety. Carbohydrate intake was reduced by 50% in treatment group during the first week and reduced further in the second week. Similar trend was observed in fat intake. These findings show that 5-HTP not only reduces appetite but lowers intake of fattening nutrients.
Animal study shows that 5-HTP administration suppresses food intake and appetite especially under stressful conditions. Therefore it is hypothesized that 5-HTP intake in humans can suppress food consumption occurring as a result of stress like binge eating.
What does this mean?
In addition to controlling appetite research proves that 5-HTP reduces cravings for sugary and fatty food items.
It has a synergistic effect with other appetite suppressants
5 HTP and Growth Hormone
Early research shows 5-HTP’s promise in boosting growth hormone. The studies conducted point to the direct and indirect impact 5-HTP may have on elevating growth hormone levels as a by-product of tryptophan and a precursor to serotonin.
Vitamin B6 is useful for weight loss because it affects your metabolism in a positive way. In scientific terms, vitamin b6 is a water soluble micronutrient, or vitamin, that’s part of the extremely important vitamin family known as the B complex.
Radiance Coffee contains 1.4mg of Vitamin B6 which is 100% of the recommended daily allowance.
Low levels of vitamin B12 in the body can make one tired and weak. Supplementing these individuals with vitamin B12 can help boost energy levels, which enhancing overall capacity to become more active. This burns calories, which aids weight loss.
Radiance Coffee contains 2.5iu which is 100% of the recommended daily allowance.
